Im really sorry I haven't been able to post details of the Northern England workshops before today but we wanted to give those who attended and booked earlier in the year chance to confirm their bookings. Thats does so now I can share the details. Please see the poster below for details there are 2 days one standard workshop and one Techniques day.
Back to today and I thought I would share a few of the different techniques I showed on the Hochanda show over the next couple of days.
This first card is made by using the square media plate. I stared by adding dawn and ultramarine izink ink over the media plate ( I have had a lot of questions about what inks I use I use Dye based inks which are fast trying and intense in colour I have found that Distress Ink works but gives a different level of paternation and is a lot softer) I then added the argyle mask over the top and ran a brayer over the top. I then added a little night ink to the brayer and ran this over to add a different colour to the plate. I then stamped this onto the card using the press to impress stamp press. Next I used the solid leaf stamp and the night izink ink pad and stamped over the media plate. I stamped this then added black versafine all around the edge of the media plate and again stamped the image.
Finally I stamped the black tree over the top ( again using the stamp press) and cut this out matting it onto a pice of blue card. For the body of the card I used a piece of card I had cleaned my brayer on for the misty background and added the pieces, with matts, to a white card blank.
Here are the details of the northern workshops!
